Re: [Wikimedia-l] Encyclopedic Writing Guide

2017-09-25 Thread Tanweer Morshed

Thanks for the resource. Such a guide is indeed essential for producing

is there an English version of the guide?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Katherine Maher is making me happy this week

2017-06-01 Thread Tanweer Morshed
Thank you Micru for bringing the talk of Katherine in the mailing list, I
probably wouldn't have watched it if you didn't post it here.

I'd like to thank Katherine for the charismatic presentation at University
of Melbourne, depicting the essence of the Wikimedia movement in the
perspective of our times. We value your leadership in the movement and your
effort to highlight the goodness of millions of Wikimedians across the
world. This isn't very common that we acknowledge the positivity and
contribution of people around us, which we should do more to encourage and
assure them that they are doing great, thus uplifting the energy within
them. Thank you Katherine!

Regards,
Tanweer

[Wikimedia-l] Wikipedia 16 across Bangladesh

2017-01-16 Thread Tanweer Morshed
Dear all,

We are happy to let you know that Wiki(p/m)edians across 7 cities in
Bangladesh celebrated the 16th anniversary of Wikipedia. Wikipedia's
anniversary was celebrated with much spontaneity by so many enthusiastic
Wiki(p/m)edians in the country. They organized meetups on the occasion
where educators, senior citizens and people from diverse background took
part in the celebration. Photos of the events can be found in the
Commons[1].

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Fresh data on the gender gap in content

2016-06-18 Thread Tanweer Morshed
Hi Asaf,

I asked Ganesh Paudel, one of the veteran Nepali Wikipedians, to know their
story behind such astonishing statistics (48% women biographies). Here is
what he said:

'We have been conducting WikiWomen editathon since march 2013. That was
focused to increase quality n quantity of women related issues. This
focused approach might have grown the contents.'



Thanks.

Hi Asaf,

The table is quite interesting! This is the first time I could imagine the
actual situation about the coverage of women biographies in various
Wikipedias, especially in my home Wiki, the Bengali Wikipedia. I'm going to
spread this statistics among the community.

And I have asked Ganesh, one of the veteran Nepali Wikipedian, as to why
the statistics of Nepali WP is that much astonishing. I'll convey his reply
to this thread.


Thanks.

 I was asked by a volunteer for help getting stats on the gender gap in
 content on a certain Wikipedia, and came up with simple Wikidata Query
 Service[1] queries that pulled the total number of articles on a given
 Wikipedia about men and about women, to calculate *the proportion of
 articles about women out of all articles about humans*.

 Then I was curious about how that wiki compared to other wikis, so I ran
 the queries on a bunch of languages, and gathered the results into a
 table,
 here:
 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ijon/Content_gap

 (please see the *caveat* there.)

 I don't have time to fully write-up everything I find interesting in
 those
 results, but I will quickly point out the following:

 1. The Nepali statistic is simply astonishing! There must be a story
 there.  I'm keen on learning more about this, if anyone can shed light.

 2. Evidently, ~13%-17% seems like a robust average of the proportion of
 articles about women among all biographies.

 3. among the top 10 largest wikis, Japanese is the least imbalanced.
 Good
 job, Japanese Wikipedians!  I wonder if you have a good sense of what
 drives this relatively better balance. (my instinctive guess is pop
 culture
 coverage.)

 4. among the top 10 largest wikis, Russian is the most imbalanced.

 5. I intend to re-generate these stats every two months or so, to
 eventually have some sense of trends and changes.

 6. Your efforts, particularly on small-to-medium wikis, can really make
 a
 dent in these numbers!  For example, it seems I am personally
 responsible[2] for almost 1% of the coverage of women on Hebrew
 Wikipedia!
 :)

 7. I encourage you to share these numbers with your communities.
 Perhaps
 you'd like to overtake the wiki just above yours? :)

 8. I'm happy to add additional languages to the table, by request.  Or
 you
 can do it yourself, too. :)

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Fwd: Wikimedia Foundation ED search steering group created

Hi everyone,

I agree with Pine on his 3rd proposal. Including a representative from the
affiliates and another from the community into the search steering group
should help including the input from wider Wikimedia community. This would
be positive both for the search process and the recruitment.

Congratulations to Katherine for taking up the responsibility! And at the

Re: [Wikimedia-l] What it means to be a *volunteer* organization

2016-03-03 Thread Tanweer Morshed
Hi David,

I wholeheartedly support your words. The Wikimedia movement relies on the
energy and enthusiasm of the Wikipedians or the volunteers from around the
world. Technology is a tool in this case, but not the driving agent. The
other tools which you mentioned are indeed important in the movement.

Regarding the practices that are running now, it's actually like, not
everything's wrong or negative. Of course there is way to explore new ideas
or practices, and that would definitely come out of spontaneous discussion
among volunteers. The movement is ever changing, so new practices and ideas
should come along the way and we must welcome such interactions or

  Dear all
 
  I am very pleased to be able to announce today that Wikimedia UK has been
  been fortunate enough to secure as our new CEO Lucy Crompton-Reid,
  currently Director of the national live literature charity Apples and
  Snakes. Lucy brings extensive experience in volunteer engagement,
  organisational development, working with strategic partners, media,
  education, and securing external fundraising from trusts and foundations.
 
  Over the course of her career Lucy has worked in both the charitable and
  public sectors, including most recently Head of Outreach at the House of
  Lords where she was strategic and operational lead for education and
  outreach activities. Before that, she worked at Arts Council England,
  initially developing strategic partnerships before setting up a new area
  office with local government and schools partnerships. As Refugee Week
  National Co-ordinator for the British Refugee Council, Lucy chaired the
 UK
  steering group of NGOs and charities, led on media activities, and
  facilitated hundreds of volunteer cultural events each year. Lucy is
  passionate about education and learning and is deeply committed to
 ensuring
  open access to knowledge and information.
 
  Lucy will be joining us in early October. In the meantime, our interim
  CEO, D'Arcy Myers, will remain in post and will be working with Lucy to
  ensure a smooth handover.
 
  Please join me in offering Lucy a very warm welcome.
 
  Lucy says
 
  /I'm delighted to be joining Wikimedia UK this October as the charity's
  new Chief Executive, and look forward to working with the staff team,
 board
  and volunteer community -- as well as national and international partners
  -- to develop the work of the organisation. This is a significant time
 for
  Wikimedia and for the open knowledge sector more broadly, with the
  potential to create unparalleled access to educational content, coupled
  with threats to limit public access to information and knowledge. With
  nearly 18 years' experience in the arts, charitable and public sectors,
 I'm
  passionate about participation, and excited about the opportunity to
  facilitate greater public engagement with online content and information
  through Wikipedia and its sister projects, and other Wikimedia UK
  initiatives./

 China is currently blocking HTTP and has done so quite frequently. The
 ability to block is largely unrelated to security.



  so people in these countries
  used wikipedia on http, so some here think that these countries are
  spying on them by forcing them to use http, but that https block in
  this countries was NOT to target wikipedia, it was to target social
  networking sites and  american based email sites like yahoo and gmail
  etc..but now by moving to HTTPS, we have now become a target for those
  countries..well done..


 That doesn't make sense. HTTPs doesn't hide the domain. The country can
 still tell that someone is visiting wikipedia rather than say facebook.
 What becomes more difficult is telling what a person is viewing on
 wikipedia.



  and to add to that, people who used
  wikipedia in those countries to find the truth about whats happening
  in their country and other regions can no longer do so since its
  blocked..Well Done again WMF..


 Well actually no they couldn't if they had a government with active
 blocking measures. With HTTP traffic governments and ISPs can (and did)
 block individual pages that they don't like.



 
  Someone has to be fired for this.
 
 
 That would seem to be something of an over reaction even if you disagree
 with the decision.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Honorary degree for Wikipedia + meeting

2015-01-11 Thread Tanweer Morshed
As Wikipedia is getting a doctorate degree after all these years (it's
actually stepping into 14th birthday on that day), it will facilitate to
collaborate with the higher educational institutions under the Education
Program. Will the universities keep ignoring Wikipedia as an
unconventional, baseless and non-reliable encyclopaedia ? :P

Congratulations to Dr. Wikipedia!

 Dear Wikimedia India Chapter members and other interested stakeholders in
 the list,

 Dear members,

 At the outset, on behalf of Wikimedia India Executive Committee for
 2013-14, I would like to thank you all for the support for the Chapter
 during the past year, as we strive hard to complete the difficult phase of
 the Chapter. I am glad to report that the huddle phase is now complete, as
 the Chapter is financially healthy, staffed and has conducted AGM and
 Elections for EC of six vacancies successfully. I would like to place on
 record my thanks to all co-founders and EC team members,volunteers from
 members and community, , WMF staff,WMF board members and partners and
 consultants for all the contributions and support towards reaching this
 important milestone.

 Last weekend we had inducted the newly elected EC members with an EC
 induction program at Bangalore. As part of it, we have completed the office
 bearer elections for the 2014-15. I would like to introduce the new team
 that has taken charge.

 The results of the  office bearer elections are as follows:

- Dr. Abhiraj Suryawanshi : President
- Jayanta Nath : Secretary
- Sanket Oswal  : Treasurer
- Priyanka Tiwari  : Member
- Yohann Varun Thomas  : Member
- Dr. Ekbal Bappukunju  : Member
- Nikhil Kawale  : Member

 We are confident that under the new EC's leadership Wikimedia Movement and
 Chapter in India will grow to greater heights in the year to come. We
 request you all to extend the support and actively engage with Wikimedia
 India to achieve the vision of sharing free knowledge with every one for
 building a Knowledge Society.

 Please join me in wishing the new team all success.
 Cheers

[Wikimedia-l] Literary works under public domain

2014-11-13 Thread Tanweer Morshed
Dear all,

A workshop on Bangla Wikipedia was held yesterday (12 November 2014) at
State University of Bangladesh [1]. Students of the university and some
faculty members participated at the workshop. Wikimedia Bangladesh (WMBD)
executive members Ali Haider Khan and Tanweer, Bangla Wikipedia
administrator Nahid Sultan and Campus Ambassador Zahid Hossain spoke at the
workshop on Bangla Wikipedia, Bengali Wikimedia projects and Wikimedia
movement in Bangladesh. Later the participants were given hands-on training
about contributing to Wikipedia.

At the end of the event, prominent Bangladeshi writer Mujtoba Ahmed
Murshed, also a faculty member of the university, gave away all his
literary works under public domain to publish them at Bangla Wikisource.
Soon he will give WMBD relevant legal documents regarding copyright issues.

  It is with great sorrow that Wikimedia Italia announces the death of
  Alessio Guidetti, better known on the projects as Cotton. He has been
  treasurer of the organization for about five years, from 2009 until last
  April.
 
  Alessio started to contribute to Wikipedia at the end of 2006: after a
 few
  months he became already a sysop. He was a tireless translator of English
  articles in the most diverse fields, and also part of the small group of
  the patrollers -and, indeed, he continued his precious work until the
 last,
  even if invisible for most of the editors.
 
  From the moment he joined Wikimedia Italia, Alessio was very keen to
  contribute effectively, guided by his well-known pragmatism. He run for
 the
  Board: as soon as he was elected, he took the role of treasurer, a
  difficult task and a fundamental one for us but little recognized. It was
  Alessio who took care of the most delicate and complicated tasks, and he
  did so in the years during which Wikimedia Italia was starting to grow
 big,
  the years of our quantum leap.
 
  This spring he decided to not run again for the Board, but he kept
  collaborating with his successor for an effective -and not only formal-
  handover. He took care of the accounting, donations and employees'
  paychecks till his very last days. He has been an incredible help:
  trustworthy, precious, always ready for a joke.
 
  Alessio has been a pillar of Wikimedia Italia: his pragmatism, his
  hardworking disposition, his sense of humor were, and are, a part of our
  organization. A part of how it was born and how it is growing. A part of
  what we are.
 
  Wikimedia Italia is close to the family and the friends of Alessio in
 this
  grievous moment.
 
  We will terribly miss him.
 
 
 
 
 
  Many of you have know Alessio in Wikimanias and conferences.
 
  If you wish, you can leave a last goodbye here on his userpage:

  Hello everyone,
 
  I'd like to announce Ivan Nikčević as the new Executive Director of
  Wikimedia Serbia.
 
  After a two month process, and with more than 200 submissions, we finally
  managed to narrow it down to one person, who we hope will be a great
  contribution to our organization, and a successful leader thereof. Ivan's
  first day was on Friday.
 
  Here's a short auto-bio that he provided:
 
  Born in the 1970, an Information Technologies engineer by education.
 During
  his 20 years long work experience Ivan was marketing and PR manager,
  journalist, TV producer, TV host and presenter and an editor in chief
 for a
  weekly TV show on IT on Serbian national TV, he also was digital
  communications consultant.
 
  His last post before joining Wikimedia team in Serbia was project and
  online communications manager in Serbian Ministry of Trade, Tourism and
  Telecommunications.
 
  Ivan was awarded twice for his exceptional contribution for development
 and
  promotion of IT technologies in Serbia, by  major professional
 associations
  from Serbian ICT sector and was an author of a documentary film “50 years
  of ICT in Serbia”.
 
  Behind an amazing professional career, a proud father of 17 years old
  daughter, a lead singer and song writer in a pop band, addicted on movies
  and popcorn, pop music, internet and video games he lives his life online
  and offline trying to be as one of his icons – George Carlin would say “a
  modern man, digital and smoke-free; a man for the millennium.”
  Cheers,
  Filip Maljković

Re: [Wikimedia-l] editor retention initiatives

2014-08-25 Thread Tanweer Morshed
Thanks James for addressing such a crucial issue. It is a vital matter but
being discussed far less than other topics, in offline or offline programs,
activities. Among measures fore retaining editors, there were some banners
that appeared on top of articles viewed by new editors or readers. I've
heard that this worked somewhat but didn't continue. In Bangladesh, we're
(Wikipedians/Wikimedians) particularly discussing and talking on how to how
to retain more editors. Many people are becoming new editors but most of
them leave after some days and become inactive. The Task recommendations
seems quite interesting, but I was unaware of it. What about its
implementation? was it ever tested on any Wikipedia and if so, how
successful was it?

  Is there a list somewhere of all currently active Foundation
  initiatives for attracting and retaining active editors?  I am only
  aware of the one project, Task Recommendations, to try to encourage
  editors who have made a few edits to make more, described starting at
   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JbZ1uWoKEgt=60m20s
 

 Task recommendations is one nascent initiative that my team is working
 on.[1] We're still in the very early prototyping and testing stages. (BTW,
 the whole video segment starts two minutes earlier at about the 58:00
 mark.)

 Task recommendations is far from the only thing we're doing to attract and
 retain active editors. Pretty much the entirety of the features development
 roadmap for desktop and mobile is focused on this problem. VisualEditor,
 Flow, mobile web and apps work, and more all address this problem from
 different angles. You can keep up with what the Foundation is doing by
 checking out the monthly engineering reports.[2]


  Is there any evidence at all that anyone in the Foundation is
  interested in any kind of change which would make non-editors more
  inclined to edit, or empower editors with social factors which might
  provide more time, economic power, or other means to enable them to
  edit more?
 

 We practically can't and don't take on initiatives that directly try to
 provide more free time or money to editors. We can, however, help people do
 more with the free time they have, and ask new people to become
 contributors. Both of those are things we're tackling. A central goal of
 improving the usability of the core editing experience across devices is to
 save people time and energy. My team's also trying other things to attract
 new community members, such as actually inviting people to sign up.[3]

 about the trust in Wikipedia and the use both in Mexico and the United

- 60% of people with internet access in Mexico has heard about
 Wikipedia.
- 82% are very or somewhat confident. In contrast, only 16% have little

- In Mexico 59% use this site to learn about different topics and 53% in

 The blog post does not indicate the method of the survey, but is a

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Vietnamese wp above 1 M articles and growing

2014-06-24 Thread Tanweer Morshed
That's a great news that the Vietnamese Wikipedia has crossed 1M articles.
What are the significant reasons behind Vietnamese Wikipedia's such growth?
Is it just the usage of such clever Bots (that you have mentioned) or
contribution by the Vietnamese Wikipedians? And actually how does the
Cheer!-bot generate articles? Does it translate articles from English (or
other) Wikipedia? And apart from translating, can it set and maintain
correctly other aspects of Wikisyntax and coding?

   Today, our organization celebrates anniversary - 5 years from the date
   of creation.
  
   Exactly 5 years ago, on May 31, 2009, in Kyiv was held the constituent
   meeting, which approved the bylaws and elected its first Board of the
  new
   organization, known as Wikimedia Ukraine.
  
   Our community has gone through a long and difficult path. Birthday of
   Wikimedia Ukraine for our community is the third remarkable date this
   year. On January 30 was the 10th anniversary of the establishment of
   Ukrainian Wikipedia and on May 12 Ukrainian Wikipedia has crossed the
   threshold of 500 000 articles.
  
   We want to thank to Wikimedia Foundation Inc. for their help, to our
   neighboring communities for fruitful cooperation with us and of course
   to our community for their contributions!

  Hello guys,
 
  Since that is our first participation in an international photo contest,
 we
  discussed locally about ways to have more information about what is
 working
  well, the results and the real impact on commons of all our efforts
 around
  Wiki Loves Earth here in Brasil.
 
  So, the Brazilian User Group studied and specified a tool, developed by
  Danilo (Danilo.mac on pt.wiki and member of the user group as well) to
 read
  database information and generate a complete report about the Wiki Loves
  Earth, including all participating countries listed on commons.
 
  The tool is hosted on the server wmflabs.org under the URL
  http://tools.wmflabs.org/ptwikis/WLE
 
  Through this tool you can have a general idea of what is going on: number
  of photos uploaded, photos used on wikis, number of uploaders(with
 complete
  list and registration date by country) and the percentage of many
  information, including uploaders registered in May 2014 during the
 contest.
 
  I guess that tool can help each country to define metrics to evaluate
 local
  efforts/results and can be useful for other local contests as well.
 
  That's our first time organizing this kind of project and we are
 learning a
  lot, until now we received more than 1.000 photos with 94% of uploaders
  registered in May 2014(200 new users for the Wikimedia Commons in 13
 days).
 
  Now we are planning a bot to provide guidance and keep in touch with that
  new users after the contest ends.
 
  Best regards!

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Proposal - Training for Wikimedia movement boards

2013-08-14 Thread Tanweer Morshed
Seems good initiative! I'd like to know, who will be training the people
from chapters?? It'll be more efficient if someone who specializes in
management of non-profit organization can do this job.

Regards,
Tanweer

 If you wish to educate board people, I think mailing lists and acronyms
 should not cover a full bulletpoint of the event because they should have
 that knowledge already

 I miss volunteer management in particular what is imo amongst the basic
 skills (it is totally different in many ways from paid staff mgmt) and
 fundraising. (Omg, we got a donation...what to do now? :)

 I'd go for general project (and time and workflow...) management instead of
 particular this and that kinda specific things. Imo first get the big
 picture, than the specific ones (Glam, editathon, etc.)

 Are you plannig to hire a professional NGO trainer (individual[s])? A
 training company specialized on NGOs? Or we should educate each other?

 Cheers,

  Hello,
  Indeed it seems to me possible to fill a whole master studies with the
  things a board member should know :-) but I know that he meant something
  different. It would be a could idea to have board members going to
  trainings to be a board member in the specific country where they live. A
  course of a weekend, for example, would be already a good help.
 Everything
  must remain a little bit realistic.
  Possibly, some board members are more open to other Wikimedians than
 people
  from the outside world - possibly not. Narrowing the target group down
 to
  chapter board members to staff chapters is a good step, and I share the
  arguments on the Meta page. Maybe one should let participants apply for
 the
  seminar in a similar way as to Wikimania, in order to have those
  participants most likely to succeed. For example, if someone is already
  more than a year board member and likely to remain at least on a board
 for
  another year, that would be a pro.
  Kind regards
  Ziko

True. Even worse, many do not even try to be board members (or active
chapter members, for that matter) because they (think they) don't
 have
enough experience. It's crucial to ensure the availability of growing
   paths
(usually informal) for volunteers or you lose them and they lose
opportunities.
For me, it's been crucial to be told by a prof. you can learn the
 job
   of a
[university] board member in 6 months (so it's inexcusable if you
  don't,
but you must try). He was right.
  
  
   A very useful book: Nonprofit Kit For Dummies by Stan Hutton and
   Frances Phillips. I so wish I'd read it 25 years before I did. Very
   US-centric, but informative outside that.
